The only thing sweeter than a secret is revenge
Twisted Threads
A family becomes an assassin's target after a crime lord's sister is brutally murdered in Kaylin McFarren's latest erotic, psychological thriller, Twisted Threads.
Akira Hamada, a beautiful Japanese geisha, failed at killing Kaito Mitsui two years ago - the same yakuza gang leader who destroyed her lover and forced her to become an assassin. Now, with his sister's murderer traveling to the Caribbean on a cruise ship, Akira has ten days at sea to identify her target and complete her assignment as her penance, or face her own death.
Devon Lyons, unaware that his aunt and uncle could be singled out and murdered, brings Akira into their lives. In searching for evidence to justify Mitsui's revenge, she soon discovers that no one is who they seem to be. All the while, Devon is drawn into the mystery of mounting deaths on board the ship, putting his own life at risk.
With killers on the loose and no avenue for escape, tension is ratcheted to a breaking point, forcing everyone to choose between love and loyalty - or deeply held honor - in order to survive.

Top Ten Best Psychological Thrillers
Psychological thriller novels have become the most popular sub genre of the thriller books category. This is because they fully captivate the reader, which makes them compulsive page turners. They focus on the minds of the characters involved instead of the story plot—the dangers they will have to face reflected in their mental understanding rather than anything that is happening to them physically. As a result, the reader is given a great way to appreciate a more profound sense of the story and to feel directly involved. 
After reading dozens of psychological thriller novels and attempting to write them myself, I have compiled this list of the top ten best psychological thrillers that I think you might enjoy reading. If you are anything like me and enjoy great character-driven novels with a twisted plot, then you are in for a real treat. So with no more suspense from me in regard to the delivery, here are the ten best psychological thriller novels, in my personal point of view:
1.    Dark Corners by Liz Schulte
2.    The Inquisitor by Peter Clement
3.    Underneath by Kealan Patrick Burke
4.    No Good Dead by M.P. McDonald
5.    The House of the Wicked by D.M. Mitchell
6.    Quiet River by Natasha A. Salnikova
7.    Twisted Truth by Joanne Clarey
8.    Jeremy’s Loss by Jeff Menapace
9.    The Lion, the Lamb, the Hunted by Andrew E. Kaufman

and my favorite of all…

10.  Max by D.M. Mitchell. This story follows the life of a famous author, Gavin Miller, and the world of Calder, a man mysteriously incarcerated in a prison on an island. Both lives are connected in the story. Calder is mentally screwed up and trying to adjust to his imprisonment. He tells a tale about his life and how Max—a deep and creepy character comes to dominate it. Eventually, it all comes to a head in a mansion on the Scottish island in a suspense-filled cat and mouse chase. Other characters like the first-edition collector and manager of the care home, and the mysterious man who's locked away there keeps you guessing to the very end, which I love.
